It's a new year and we're back with a brand new release, jam packed full of some really exciting things to help inspire your creativity and spread love! To help us showcase these products we've asked Caly Person, Dana Kirby, and Ilina Crouse to join us as our January Guest Designers! To kick off the month we're sharing what they've created with the Love Quilt Top Bundle and Love Lines Bundle! Check it out below along with some fun facts about each of these lovely ladies.
I’m a wife and mother to 4 wonderful kids – 3 boys and 1 girl. I have an incredibly sweet and supportive husband who encourages me as I balance between family, work, and hobby.
I was introduced to Stampin’ Up! in June 2014 and the rest is history! We had moved to a little town in Ohio at the time and knew no one, so I self-taught through You-Tube videos and found that there was a BIG world beyond Stampin’ Up!
We’ve moved “home” to the Kansas City area since. It has been slow growth for me since I worked full-time for so long, but I’m ok with that. I stopped working as a pharmacist in May 2019 and have dove full force into creating full time. I’ve learned so much about the paper crafting world and feel that I am constantly learning and growing.

My name is Dana and I live in central California with my husband and we have two daughters. I started scrapbooking in 1995 and moved onto card making around 2010 when I discovered clear stamps. Through this hobby I have met so many amazing and talented people. I am so excited to be a guest for Concord and 9th as their products are some of my favorites. Thanks so much for this opportunity and I can’t wait to share my projects with all of you!

Hi, I am Ilina Crouse. I live in Milton, GA with my wonderful husband of 18 years and our 3 little monkeys: Anna-11, Milena-9 and Jason-7, and our Cavalier pup Ella . As you can see I have my hands full. During the day I work as an Electrical Engineer/Proposal Engineer for Siemens Energy. I know it doesn't sound fun at all, but it is (at least for me), as it involves creativity, but a different kind of one. I am also a runner (currently in time out while recovering from knee surgery due to running injury) and at night I am crafter. I also love to travel.
I have been stamping since I was about 8 years old and still lived in Macedonia (South Eastern Europe) , when my parents brought me a stamp set from one of their trips. I turned more towards card making while I was in college in the late 1990’s. In Macedonia supplies were limited so I had to get really creative and up cycle supplies. In 2004 I moved to the US and discovered a whole new world of card making supplies!
I love clean and simple designs and I love die cutting, also I like to experiment with different techniques and coloring mediums.
